Jesse had blood and crystals in his urine but no stones. Jake had blood in his urine with bladder stones. For now they have been switched to the Royal Canin SO Urinary food. A couple of issues-food serving is more volume than they are used to so it's hard for them to eat all of it. They are also much thirstier (food is designed that way) so they are drinking much more water, which I am sure is suppressing their appetites. I'm not worried so much about Jake-he is 66 lbs and overweight. However, Jesse was dead on at 50 lbs but has lost 2 lbs in the two weeks he's been on the new food. He's always been cyclical in his eating habits but right now is far more interested in just water. It's a struggle to get him to eat. Had an appointment today for a skin/thyroid med follow-up and the vet indicated they both should adjust to the higher sodium level therefore the urge to drink water will subside some. Has anyone gone through this? Vet also indicated that there are other foods to put them on if this one is causing issues. Comments? Thanks.

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.

These diets are designed to adjust pH and mineral content to treat the conditions present. There are other brands available, but I'd talk to a nutritionist (possibly at Royal Canin) to see if there is an calorie supplementation that wouldn't change the mechanism of action the diet is trying to achieve.

Can you split out the meals? Instead of two times, maybe do three times? That might help him get it all down. As he adjusts to the new food, and its effects, he will probably get back to normal eating habits.

I may have spoken too soon. This morning both dogs ate just about all of the breakfast. Here's hoping it's the start of a new trend!

Dr. Doug, I will keep that in mind.

Toedtoes, most days I can probably feed three times but not all. I'll definitely consider it if problems continue.

Talk to your Vet. Mine are on Gasto Intestinal Royal Canin.
